Hi Jeff,

Yes, each text file page says "Downloaded XXX times" beneath it, but to the best of my knowledge the counter ceased counting at the same time you installed the new text file viewer last week. For instance, I downloaded this pdf file twice today - about 12 hours ago and 3 hours ago respectively:

When the counter rolled over as it formerly did about 6AM West Coast Time, no increase on the counter was registered. It's been stuck at 2676 for a while.

Anyway, the download counter is an interesting metric for some people. Cheers...

i'll check but it will take at least 24 hours.

but just to clarify. a download is considered to be:
one action (download or read online), per item, per day, per IP address. so downloading it twice for the same IP in the same day will only count as a single download. And, it takes 24 hours to recache the download counts so pegging that to a specific time might not be best. i'd wait at least 24 hours after you made the download to check.

all that said i do see that it is still at 2672 so i will investigate.

thanks.

The download coounter appears to be working again. Thank you for fixing that.
